Long time...No post

Seems to be a habit of mine. I just keep forgetting to update things here. I am STILL recovering from this horrible cough, they call it the 90-day cough, and I can well believe that it will hang around that long. Just when I think I've finally shaken it, I start up with the coughing again - I REALLY don't like this winter.
Anyhow, I really wanted to write about a new to me yarn that I am working with - just a simple scarf mind you, but it is really quite kewl looking. It's called 'Moda Vera Millefoglie', and is made up of 56% Acrylic, 38% Polyamide/Nylon, 5% Virgin Wool, and 1% Polyster Metalic. I am using 7.5mm needles, and 20sts, and it is coming out quite interesting. It is actually different sections of yarn, so you get to change yarns, without having to get another ball. I know what I'm trying to say, just not coming out right.
I'm gonna get my hair coloured today. My sister is coming up this afternoon to do it. I'm getting a red brown put through it. Don't know how it will look, I'm just trying to cover up the grey. I don't have too much of it, but enough to where I wanna stay coloured just a little longer - crikey I'm only 49!!! lol

What a day!!!

What a day at work!!!! The tills were down all day through most of the shop. There were only three tills operating, and they were over at the other end of the shop. In our department, we also didn't have a computer, which is a real pain. Our MFC got rather wet on saturday, and it is now fried - totally. We depend on that, too. You dont realise just how much, until you dont have it to use. Because we werent able to put sales through, you would have thought I could get my jobs done - not on your nellie!!! I think I only got two jobs completed, and thats because I ended up directig people through to the other side, where the working tills were. We dont even know if things will be up and running tomorrow - lets hope they are. Two days in a row, like today, is NOT good!!!

I have one main resolution this year, and that is to try to write here more often. I have sadly neglected this little on line diary, and hope to do better this year. I dont lead a particularly exciting life, and am not really very good with words,but I will try. I always have a good post written in my head, but, sadly, it never seems to make it any further. Of course, part of that is because I put my own inflection to the words, and know how I want it to sound, but, once you actually write it down, it can come out sounding completely differently.
I have already started the New Year off well, when it comes to FO's. I've actually completed two bookmarks, adn both used cotton from my small stash of cotton. I do have a good sized stash, but not when it comes to cotton, that is exceedingly small. Quite disappointing, actually. That is one of my other resolutions, to try to use more of my stash - not that I WONT be buying more, but, I will try to be more fussy - if that's the right word to use; or should it be picky? I may not always have a project in mind, but that has never been a problem, the project comes in time. Sometimes, quite a bit of time passes, but hey, I'm not in any hurry.
